2015 GT Mustang Built by Bama Performance

11.2 Second 2015 Mustang Run

Hey, guys. Paul from Bama Performance and we're back with our 2015 Mustang GT. And as you can see, we've made a couple changes. We've got the skinnies up front, we've got the slicks in the back, we've got some custom suspension, some weight reduction, full exhaust system and a cold air intake. But, we still have the stock intake manifold. We're going for the world record for the fastest, naturally-aspirated Mustang GT. After that, we're gonna turn it up a little bit with a secret recipe going for the fastest 2015 Mustang GT in the world.

First pass, first pass off the track. All right, guys. First pass off the trailer and we set the naturally-aspirated record for 2015 Mustang GT, 11.24 at 121 mile an hour. And we're just getting started. Stay tuned.

All right, guys. Our second and third passes were a little bit slower than the first one right off the trailer, 11.30, 11.30 in the first pass with 11.24. This thing is consistent and it's still continuing to be the fastest 2015 naturally-aspirated Mustang on the planet. We're gonna let it cool down, get this thing back to the track and see if we can shoot for 10s.

Sayonara.

Man: Make sure there's no fluids underneath once we push it. Is there any fluid? Eh? [inaudible 00:02:33] Trans or rear, one or the other. Input shaft.

Paul: All right, guys. This is never a good sign. You can tell we broke something, but overall, a really good day. We went 11.24 at 121 mile an hour. That is now the fastest 2015 Mustang GT naturally-aspirated in the world. We let the car cool down, we went back for another pass, and the thing broke right at the line. We either snapped a halfshaft or broke something in the transmission. Personally, I think it's in the transmission. But, we're gonna get it back to the shop, tear it apart, see what broke and bring it back, stronger and better than ever. If you wanna see more 2015 content, click on the Subscribe button below.

All Motor Mustang Build Hits 10.6 Seconds

What's up guys? Justin with AmericanMuscle.com here. Now, if you have been following our YouTube channel or some of our social media channels lately, as you should be of course, then chances are you've seen our BAMA tuned 2015 GT just setting the world on fire at the drag strip and going really, really fast. Last week, we went to MIR with the car, we backed up our all motor 11.2 pass before spraying this thing a 150 shot going 10.4 at 129. I noticed a lot of you guys had some questions about that track video, more specifically the fact that we had a Boss manifold on at the beginning, but not on at the end of the video. Here is the deal guys, Paul and the BAMA team basically determined that the 2015 intake manifold has more intake manifold volume compared to the Boss manifold. I know that sounds like a tongue twister, but it basically means that the 2015 intake manifold is capable of flowing more air than the Boss manifold. Now they backed that up on the dyno but we wanted to try it out at the track anyway. And lo and behold, the car lost two-tenths in the quarter mile, and lost a considerable amount of mile an hour. So we switched out that Boss manifold for the stock 2015 intake manifold right then and there at the track and it picked up those two-tenths and it picked up a lot of mile an hour.

Well guys fast forward to this past Saturday, we took the BAMA tuned 2015 GT back down to the track and it went even faster. Now the BAMA crew worked hard on the tune. They tweaked a few things, they were able to pull some more power out of the car using E85 and the car went on a serious diet, lost a lot of weight and as a result, the car went 10.6 at 123 all motor, which is absolutely incredible. It backed this up twice as a matter of fact so it's very consistent. And we could not be happier with how this car is performing. After those two 10.6 all motor passes, we wanted to spray this thing to see what the car was really capable of and the track prep was awesome. The air was great, the DA was really, really nice and as a result we went 10.2 at 128 on the 150 shot. This thing was just boogieing. The car was still having issues with the nitrous. We haven't quite ironed it out yet, but that being said, we're gonna go back down to the track this week, really hunting those nines. I think we're knocking on the door and time will only tell if we get this thing down.

So weather permitting, be on the look out for another video coming your way very soon. Hopefully you will be seeing a nine second pass. But in the meantime, subscribe to our YouTube channel if you haven't done so already so you can be the first to check out these latest updates with the 2015s.

2015 GT Does 10.4 Pass

Justin: What's up, guys? Justin with americanmuscle.com here with Paul from the BAMA Performance team. We're at MIR, Maryland International Raceway, again, here with our 2015 GT. Now, last week, we and the rest of the video team were kind of at SEMA, have a little bit of fun out there, but you guys are having a little bit of fun on your own here. Tell us about what happened.

Paul: We were. You know, we came to the track with one goal in mind. We wanted to set the naturally aspirated world record for 2015 Mustang GT, and we did that. But you guys saw, you know, we did at an expense. We broke a half shaft. Now we wanna test these cars.

Justin: We're back. We're more beefed up this time. Tell us about some of these new parts.

Paul: We are. Our good buddies at the driveshaft shop hooked us up with some of their level five axles and, of course, one of their carbon fiber drive shafts. And the nice thing is these are completely solid. It's got some upgraded CV joints, upgraded materials so definitely not gonna break them this time around.

Justin: Or it looks like we're about ready to have a little bit more fun with some laughing gas, huh?

Paul: That's right. We've got a little bit of nitrous on this car.

Justin: Right now, Ford Racing and their 99 challenge video, their car with the blower on top, won the best of 10.97. So that's what we're gunning for here today with the juice. Time to spray the shit out of it.

Paul: Nitrous is on.

Justin: All right, Paul. A hell of a day, man, with this car. Yet again, this thing is just did not disappoint.

Paul: Yeah, we hit this thing with 150 shot, car went 10.40 at 129 mile an hour. You know, super stoked. It's, you know, right now, as of today, the fastest 2015 with the power adder and naturally aspirate.

Justin: And a lot of the... The praise goes to this man right next to me here, Paul from the BAMA Performance team and the rest of the guys over at BAMA doing a hell of a job over there with these new 2015s. So this is not the last you'll see of this car so be sure to stay tuned.

2015 GT Mustang on the Dyno

Justin: Hey, everybody. Justin with americanmuscle.com, here with my buddy, Paul from the Bama Performance team, and the car you guys all know and love, right? Our 2015 GT that went 10s all motor, 9s with a nitrous, and if you guys haven't seen it, what are you doing? Subscribe to our YouTube channel, click on the link below if you're watching this on YouTube. Facebook friends, give us a like and head to our YouTube channel, AmericanMuscle Videos and subscribe while you're there. Now guys, we've been hearing a lot of questions on YouTube, as a matter of fact, with this car. Guys, what's up with the tune in that car? Can I have that for my 2015? Well, here with me now is the guy who can answer that for you. Paul, tell these people what they want to hear.

Paul: They absolutely can have this tune. This is our Version 2 Race Tune that we do make it available for everyone in the public. They'll likely do all of our testing on the dyno. We spend thousands of mile testing on the street. We test our Race Tunes at the racetrack. Now obviously, this is designed for a specific race fuel. But, if you're running that exact same combo, we're gonna make this available for you. If you're running a different gas, maybe E85 or even 93 Octane, the skeleton is still the same. We're just gonna make the adjustments for the fueling and the spark if you have a change in gas.

Justin: So you're telling me I have a Boss manifold car, basically full bolt-ons, log, tubes, exhaust, I can throw in some race gas, you can send me the exact same tune that's pretty much in this car?

Paul: Yep.

Justin: There you go. How about nitrous-wise? You guys gonna offer some nitrous support?

Paul: We are gonna offer nitrous support. This car does have 150 shot in it. However, for our mail-order customers, because of a lot of variables, we're only tuning for up to 100 shot.

Justin: Nice, man. Well, let's stop talking already. Let's show these guys what they wanna see, the numbers with this setup. So, I'm gonna get out of the way and let it rip, sir.

Well, Paul, NA runs are in the book, sir. What are we looking at, number-wise?

Paul: The car laid down 463 wheel horsepower and 400 foot-pounds of torque.

Justin: Now, that's up huge from, of course, the bone stock runs of 366 and 353, about what you'd expect with a bone stock 2015. So, over that, we're making about 97 peak horsepower, 100 horsepower throughout the curve and 80 pound-feet of torque throughout the curve. I mean, just humongous gains and something somebody at home can get, just with a few mods and the help of a Bama tune, right?

Paul: Correct.

Justin: There you go. Well, guys, now it's time to get this 150 shot in the books here. So, I'm gonna get out of the way one more time.

Well, Paul, let's dissect these nitrous numbers, man. What are we looking at?

Paul: The car made 588, 685 foot-pounds of torque.

Justin: Absolutely huge from a little 150 shot, right? I mean, huge amounts of torque. That's pretty much indicative of running nitrous, right? So, we're looking at 125 peak horsepower over the NA numbers. And then, curve gains, get this, guys. Two hundred and twenty-six horsepower and 306 pound-feet of torque underneath the curve. Absolutely ridiculous. Paul, with numbers like this, I mean, obviously the race tunes are doing their job. But, why would people wanna run the performance tune you guys also offer?

Paul: It's called the Race Tune because it's really designed for race use only. But, we take everything we had learned at the track with our race testing and we apply that to all of our performance tune. And really, they're almost gonna make pretty much the same numbers. They're just designed for the aggressive daily driver, something for the street.

Justin: There you go. Well, as you can see, Paul's been working very hard on the tunes here. You guys all know this car, again, man, you see how it's making this power. You see the numbers here on paper. So, if you guys wanna pick up a Bama tune for your ride, you should know where to get it by now. Americanmuscle.com is your spot for all things Mustang in 2015.

Hitting High 9s at the Track

Justin: What's up, everybody? Justin with americanmuscle.com. We're back here at MIR here in Maryland with our Bama Tune 2015 GT chasing down that nine-second time slip. Now guys, if you've been following this car, then chances are you've probably seen it recently go 10.6 at 123 all motor, followed by a 10.2 at 128 on a 150 shot. But, we're not happy, right? We're going for nines, and that's what we're here today. Now, we're here with Paul from Bama Performance as well as Mike J. from the Bama team, and these guys have been doing a heck of a job with the car. But, quick rundown on the car, guys. Basic bolt-ons, JT cold air intake, long tube headers, midpipe exhaust, of course. Our friends over at the Driveshaft Shop hooked us up with a nice driveshaft along with their Level 5 halfshafts. Pretty basic suspension stuff going on there. We have rubber bushings, some adjustable shocks in the rear, Cobra Jet Springs, and other than that, of course, that Bama Tune with this guy here next to me will talk about in a minute.

We've done a lot of work to this car as far as making it lighter, right Paul? So, why don't we tell these guys at home what this thing's weighing in at.

Paul: We recently weighed the car after taking out some more weight, and it comes in at 3450 pounds with driver and a quarter tank of gas.

Justin: So Paul, today the car has the Boss manifold back on it. We explained to these guys in a recent video why we switched back to the stock manifold. But, why are we back here revisiting the Boss?

Paul: So, exactly what we experienced. The stock intake works very well naturally aspirated. But, we said that we were running into some nitrous issues. After getting the car back on the dyno when we were working on our tune, we discovered that we were having some nitrous distribution issues with the factory intake. So, we decided to put the Boss intake manifold back on, and it seems to have cured our problems and we're gonna find out when we take it down the track.

Justin: Yeah, absolutely, 100%. Now, as far as the tune is concerned, what kind of gas are we using here today?

Paul: Now, we really wanna take this car as fast as we possibly can. When we went 10.60s, we had E85 in it. But, we've seen some great results with FTW Purple, so we decided to put some FTW Purple in the car, and we picked up about 10 to 15 wheel horsepower after adjusting our custom tune for it.

Justin: There you go. Well, this thing's pretty much maxed out horsepower-wise for now. I mean, we've done all of our homework. You guys have done a great job. We got a great driver, of course. So now, it's the moment of truth, man. Let's get this thing in the line and let's see if the nines are in the air.

Mike: Woo hoo. There it is. Boom.

Justin: Nice. That is awesome. That is awesome. Nine ninety-one at 135. Hot damn. All right, Paul, man. Awesome day, brother.

Paul: Good job.

Justin: We went 9.91, 135. I mean, we solved our nitrous problems, but that's a hell of a dip going from a 10.2 at 128 to a 9.9 at 135. We picked up a lot of mile an hour. Tell these guys at home how we did that.

Paul: After our last track outing at Cecil when we went to 10.20s, we decided to get the car back onto the dyno, we did change the fuel and we just really focused on getting every last horsepower out of this thing when we were doing our tune on it.

Justin: Absolutely. And the Boss manifold seemed to solve our nitrous issues, right?

Paul: It did, yeah. You know, after looking at all the data logs on the dyno, and then backing it up with what we saw on the track, all the distribution issues are definitely solved.

Justin: I know this guy's on top of the world. I know I am too. It's been a hell of a day here, but we always tell you guys to subscribe to our YouTube channel, right? Well, this is why you should do it, because you get to see awesome stuff happening, cars going nine seconds. And this thing, I guarantee you, will be back, bigger and better. So in the meantime, guys, stay tuned. And for all things Mustang, keep it right here at americanmuscle.com.

2015 GT Supercharged at the Track

Justin D.: Hey, everybody. Justin with americanmuscle.com. Really excited to share with you some big news going on here at AM. Now, over the last few months, the Bama team have been working very hard on developing their own supercharger system available for the 2015 GT, which will be dropping here at americanmuscle.com very soon. In fact, we already installed one of these on our 2015 Bama GT and took it down to North Carolina to do some testing, and well, see for yourself.

Hey, everyone. Justin with americanmuscle.com, and Paul from the Bama Performance team, and of course, our old friend, the 2015 GT. Now, of course, you guys haven't forgotten about this car. Nine second with the help of a nitrous shot. But we're back, we're back with a different power adder, and we're back to have some more fun to do some testing. Paul, what's going on with this thing now?

Paul: We're out here testing our Bama Supercharger. It's a 2.9-Liter Twin Screw Supercharger with 123-millimeter mass air housing, and a huge 132-millimeter elliptical throttle body.

Justin D.: Very nice. Now, we had this thing on the dyno already. You're kind of fine-tuning that massive throttle body. What's this thing laying down?

Paul: At about 11 pounds of boost, it made 687 horsepower and 510 foot-pounds of torque to the rear wheel.

Justin D.: Wow. Now, obviously we're here at the track to kind of compare our times. The only issue is we're at an eighth mile of track, so we're gonna have to compare our nitrous times or quarter mile times to these supercharged eighth mile times and kind of see what the front half look like, and see if we're basically beating our old times based on that data. So, we're just gonna get this thing aligned and, you know, shake it down, see how it does.

All right, Paul. So, first pass off the trailer. Not too bad, right? I mean, the car's only a tenth slower but it picked up mile an hour.

Paul: Yeah, two mile an hour over our nitrous runs. But, still first pass off the trailer, shaking it down.

Justin D.: Shaking it down.

Paul: [inaudible 00:02:09]

Justin D.: Yeah, new power adder.

Paul: I wish we were at a quarter mile track, because this thing woulda definitely beat our 990.

Justin D.: If not, yeah. Definitely, if not better than that, for sure.

Man: So, what's the deal?

Paul: Same time pretty much as before, 6.45 at 112. All right, guys. We're here with our driver, Justin. We just finished shaking the car down, making a couple passes. Overall, the results were pretty good. We went 6.40 at 112 mile an hour in the eighth. It's about a tenth off of where we were with the nitrous, but we've picked up, you know, two miles an hour. You know, why don't you explain to everyone, you know, what the difference is really with the eighth mile and quarter mile, and why you think this thing is gonna shine, you know, once we get it to a full quarter mile track?

Justin: Traditionally, nitrous cars do a lot better in the eighth mile. You know, it hits with a lot of torque, you don't have to RPM it as much, and it's gonna usually get to eighth mile quicker than a supercharged car would. And a supercharged, on the other hand, will pull a lot better on the back half of the track. And this has a lot more useable RPM than we did with the nitrous. So, we'll be able to rev it higher, shift it higher, and I really think this thing's gonna go a lot better once we get it on a quarter mile track and, you know, the back half numbers will be a lot better than our nitrous was.

Justin D.: Well, Paul, these days are a lot of fun, right? We're out here with our 2015 GT. We're shaking the thing down with a brand new power adder, and we're not looking to break any records. We're just gathering data. And I think, overall, you think it's a success?

Paul: Yeah. Overall, the car's a great success. As you said, we're just shaking down the Bama Supercharger, and it's basically the exact same way we would sell it to our customers. Ten and a half, 11 pounds of boost, you know, same fuel system that they would get, and the car in the eighth mile went 6.37 at 114, again, using that calculator with the ET and the mile an hour, we can track that down to a 10.06 at 141 mile an hour. But really, if this thing was at a full track, because we have that full usable RPM range, I think it would actually go faster than our nitrous run, probably in that 989, 985 range. It's got the mile an hour for it. So again, for the first day out with the Bama Supercharger, I'm so happy with the results.

Justin D.: There you go, man. This guy pretty much said it all. It was a success. Any time you can come out to the track, have a lot of fun, collect a lot of data, and more importantly, drive the car back onto the trailer with a new power adder, that says a lot. So guys, we had a blast down here in North Carolina. Obviously, the car's doing great with its new Bama Supercharger. Look for those to hit americanmuscle.com very soon. Again, you can pick up the exact same kit we have on this car and go click off a serious time. So, you guys know what to do by now. We are not even close to done with this car. We're gonna be going a lot faster, I promise you that, and a lot of it is thanks to this guy and the Bama Performance team. So stay tuned, and for all things Mustang, keep it right here at americanmuscle.com

9.4 Second Pass with 944 Horsepower

Hey, everybody. Justin with americanmuscle.com here with a quick little update on our 2015 AM Race GT, the car you guys all know for being the first 2015 in the nines. Well, recently that thing got a brand new built motor, hit the dyno jet here in the shop where it laid down a staggering 944 rear wheel horsepower courtesy of that Bama Supercharger system, and the 2.9 Whipple Blower. But, we took it back down to MIR to do some testing with the new setup, and wouldn't you know it, first pass off the trailer, the thing reclaimed the 2015 record. It was an amazing pass. I'll tell you how and why we got there. But first, check out the video.

All right, guys. So, there you have it, a blistering 9.49 at 136. Now, I'll get into some of the details of the actual run here in a minute. But first, let's talk a little bit more about that built motor. Now, as you probably know, the stock motor in this thing served us pretty well, had put up with a ton of abuse, but it finally met its match. It chewed up a timing chain sprocket on one of our testing sessions, causing catastrophic failure to the motor. So as a result, we had to go with a built motor, we went with an RGR JPC Short Block containing all the 15 components and along with some '11 to '14 timing and valve train components. Why? Because, frankly, it's a little stronger and there's really not a whole lot of stuff out there for the '15 as of yet. Along the way, we discovered that the '11 to '14 valve train components didn't really vibe too well with the '15 electronics. So therefore, we had to reach out to our friends over at Ford Racing. They hooked us up with one of their control pack modules, and it fired up like a charm.

All right. So, we talked about the block a little bit. Let's talk about the run, because some of my hardcore drag guys out there might have realized that 136 seems awfully low given the 9.49, and here's the deal with that. Guys, the car still has a stock MT82 transmission in the thing, if you can believe it, and our driver basically didn't wanna power shift into fifth, and he could have caused some harm to the motor or transmission. So, we figured we'd play it safe. We're just shaking the car down. He put it into neutral and coasted through the traps and still was able to run a 9.49 at 136, basically shutting the thing down at 1,000 foot. So, absolutely crazy. This car's performing really well, especially given the conditions. Guys, the DA was at 3600. It was a hot, humid day. Traction was certainly suffering, but again, very commendable given the conditions.

Last but not least, guys, this thing isn't exactly light. It weighs 3,650 with a quarter tank of gas, thanks to the new cage and some other goodies in the car. So again, not a lightweight tin can by any stretch of the imagination. So, we're not even done with this car, guys. We're just getting started. We're having a lot of fun in the process, and you have to keep it right here for more info on the car. And we hope to see you at our AmericanMuscle Mustang show at Maple Grove. You'll actually get to see this monster run in person. But in the meantime, for all things Mustang, keep it right here at americanmuscle.com.
